As is the case every time he steps onto the court, Kevin Durant was in the right place at the right time on Saturday. But after his Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs last week to advance to the Western Conference Finals, Durant didn’t have to worry about stepping onto the court until Monday night.
He did, however, earn his first assist way before the series started.
According to Joleen Chaney of News 9, medical and emergency personnel were stuck in rush-hour traffic until Durant helped to saved the day.
Paramedic Peter Radford explained the situation, per Chaney:
“We were stuck in traffic, so pretty much cars surrounding us all over. All of a sudden, I see a silver Ferrari or a silver sports car pull in behind us. … I see this Ferrari has its flashers on. It’s actually making way for us to get through and navigate all the traffic.”
Radford said that he didn’t immediately recognize that it was Durant who was in the car, but his partner did. He added that Durant waved, saying that it was “so cool that someone like [Durant]” would help in an emergency situation.
